tony o Posted July 22, 2014 Share Posted July 22, 2014 Hiya Folks, Another tank from my collection,.....here is the 17 pdr A30 Challenger, made from the SKP kit; Here it is almost ready to start painting........quite a bit of filler needed but a simple build (on a Tea Tray lying on the settee whilst recovering from an injury) which I enjoyed as I`ve always liked the WW2 Chally!! The metal 17 pdr is superb but I`ve chickened out with the tracks however and although I was going to order a set of resin `Trak Pak`s' from Acc Armour a kind fellow modeller gave me a couple of sets of rubber Tamiya Cromwell tracks instead which did the job nicely, he used metal tracks on his models; Here is the finished model; It is meant to go on a diorama one day once I get better at doing this sort of stuff, hence the uneven tracks! The colour scheme is based on photographic evidence which shows three or four A 30 Challengers of 7th Armoured Division wearing a disruptive camouflage finish seen amongst lines of Cromwells being prepared for battle, seen here; . Hope you like it, Tony 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
